Disconnected

  • Photographer
    Natalia Krezel

Emotional detachment-inability to connect on an emotional level, indifference, and avoidance of engaging emotional connections is an omnipresent theme in my work. Using often vintage cloth and props I try to present psychological issues of modern man (difficulty connecting with others, low self-esteem, depression, and anxiety), often connected with the continuous evolution of technology. Image inspired by the article "Being connected while becoming disconnected" by Radu Ciobanu. Staged portrait, shoot in a studio, 2019.

I am a photography student based in Edinburgh with a keen interest in portraiture, documentary and staged photography. Born in Poland and currently living in Scotland. My aim is to create images that are reliant on emotion and narrative. Literature, arts, and film continue to be key influences on my work.
